Vibrant colors bring enthusiasm
Lots of offices are choosing furniture in bright colors. It's due to the reason that cool and bright colors assist in lifting a person's mood. It's a good way to alleviate stress, as well as increase productivity.
It is not just tech and creative set-ups getting experimental in their color and design choices. More professional services and financial services firms are kitting out their offices with E-Gaming Desks, beanbag chairs and abundant indoor greenery.
While hammocks and deckchairs may prove a talking point in communal areas, furniture needs to support and reflect the task being carried out, says Neil Thomas, interior design team leader at Tétris UK, a JLL subsidiary.
“Offering a bright, vibrant workplace has a big impact on attractiveness, particularly for companies employing younger staff – as well as an image for external visitors,” says Thomas. “Furniture creates interest and enables the introduction of color and texture. Interfaced with technology it transforms environments.”
“But with businesses looking to optimize their space and reduce the overall number of desks, the type of furniture being used around the office bears both a tangible and indirect cost.”
Furniture can account for between 10 and 25 percent of overall fit-out costs. And there is more choice than ever before. The global office furniture market, including Folding Computer Desks and swivel chairs, as well as workspace storage units, is growing with companies expected to spend US$84 billion by 2021, according to Statista.
